Does anyone know what makes someone a genius ninja, for instance why is Neji reffered to as a genuis clan, and Sasuke a genius of his? I was just wondering because I am watching the begining of Gaara and Sasuke's fight, and Lee called Sasuke a genius.

Jiraiya

let's see for neji he is in the branch family and he able to do kaiten and gentle fist style , 64 hands of hakke., which is the main family secrets. and for sasuke lee call him a genius becuase , he obtain the same speed that lee have with out the weights in a one month time. which took lee yrs to get his speed

well there is no true defination of genius ... as long as you do something big and proud ppl could call u a genius ... they have always called kakashi a genius because of his skill and his dad ... white fang ... and sasuke was called a genius cause he could use his sharingan ... and there is only two uchiha members left ... so sasuke was regarded as a genius and he could master lee's speed ... and neji was considered 1 becoz he learned the head family moves in just a month ... and most importantly he is from the branch

Just because they can do something that not many can do, they are called genius. Lee can also consider a genius as well.

A genius is someone who can do a lot with what seems like a little effort. For example Kakashi is a genius with ninjutsu, which means he can learn ninja faster than than the average ninja.

Does that take into account that he has the Sharingan, which allows him to copy the moves. Which basically means as long as he has a good memory he can learn all moves he sees, and not just copy them.

Kakashi was a genius before he got the Sharingan. You read the manga dont you, you saw him. He became a jounin, and he created his own jutsu 12 or 13.
But yet Kakashi was ready to call Lee a genius since he was able to unlock so many gates.
Kakashi just said, "Could he be a genius after all" and then he said something about opening the gates takes more than hardwork. He didnt call Lee a genius.

Yeah I also think Kakashi knew because the second Sasuke said what his goal was Kakashi knew who he was talking about, meaning he knew why he would want to kill his brother. Also Kakashi has a way of knowing things most jounin's and chunnin'd don't know off hand, so he is very knowledgeable in all areas it seems.

yep! to me that;'s what gebius is to obtained something faster than anyine and that something must nt be ordinary! sooo it can be said that naruto is a genius? nt at all bcoz to obtained all the jutsu he worked exceptionally hard while the others get it exceptionally done w/ a little training(i mean light) even though we didn't see the others do the training we can still understand that they are nt working as hard as naruto( so naruto can be a hidden genius afterall) see kakashi obtaing a jutsu in a matter of time even if you have sharringgan you stil need practice to copy but in zabusa's case he didn't have! >_<

Then that makes me wonder the, the fourth couldn't have been a genuis because it did take him 3 years to master the Rasengan unlike the 1-2 weeks for Naruto. I think Tsande would call Naruto a genius for learning the move so quickly. In regards to Neji and Sasuke both learning there respective moves, they to had about a months time to learn them, and judging by there personalities I doubt they were lounging and watching the birds, we know for a fact that Neji was working just as hard as Naruto. For the simple fact that when he was training with Ten Ten he was saying how it is time to get serious or something when he was training.

It took the Fourth 3 years to create the jutsu, not master it. And Naruto is definetly not a genius. Yeah it took him like a week to master the rasengan, but remember that he only mastered up to the 3rd level. I can't remember exactly but I think that there are 8 different levels to it. Besides he can't even do bunshin no jutsu, one of the basic ninjutsus. How can a genius not know how to do that.

Which ones is Bunshin no Jutsu? Also you have one thing mixed up Naruto has mastered part of it the 8th levels you speak of, is the 8 levels of jutsu. The Rasengan is at the 2nd from the top level of jutsu.

Keichii
01-09-2005, 10:07 PM
Basically a genius is just someone who is exceptionally good. It can be through family heritage or just their own achievements.
Here are some:
Kakashi- Sharingan and his creating the chidori
Sasuke- Sharingan and exceptional abilities
Neji- learning most of the Hyuuga clan secrets and Byakugan

Also I think he means he couldn't use Henge no Jutsu which is creating an un-solid version of yourself. I don't know if he still can't use it but he couldn't before. Kage Bunshin no Jutsu is the solid clones.

I meant steps. You know, like the first step was popping the water balloon, the second was popping the rubber ball. The bunshin no jutsu is a like kage bunshin only that its not real, its just a genjutsu and it can't do anything. If its hit once it disappears. Henge is the transformation.

I thought that was the one, actually he can do the Bunshin no Jutsu, he did it against Neji. He couldn't get it at first, but by working at it over and over again he learned how to do it. Also he went above and beyond that by doing Kage no Jutsu, which is a jounin level move.

There aren't 8 steps there are only 3 as of right now, unless you know something that hasn't been said in the anime or manga. Naruto has mastered the Rasengan in regards to his chakra, that is why Tsunade couldn't believe when she saw him use it on Kabuto. In fact she even said that he had mastered it, as well as Jiraiya. Naruto has learned and become very good at all the jutsu's that were taught in school, which he displayed during the first round in the chuunin exam, he turned into Kiba as well as his dog, which according to you is bunshin no jutsu.

Actually if you recall he created a Bunshin no jutsu clone to fool Neji in there fight, the clone laid in the whole and made it look like Naruto was out cold. Naruto specifially stated that he failed the exam numerous times and that Bunshin no jutsuit was his worst jutsu to do, but he practiced it since he knew it was his weakest moveand finally got it to work.

See that doesn't spell out what a genius is, based off the fact that Naruto improvised in his fight with Kiba. Kiba was moving way to fast for Naruto and was outsmarting him, so he thought up a way to beat him. Sort of along the same lines he improvised how to beat the Hidden Mist nins when they were all under water trying to protect Idate.

You seem to be under the premise that Naruto will never ever learn this move without the creators showing it to us, I will need to go back and view previous episodes to verify if he has ever done the Bunshin no jutsu. Does anyone know if you can do replicants as well as clones at the same time.

Naruto doesn't want to learn the jutsu. Isn't there something that you hated as a kid, so much that you won't even do it now. Besides he knows the kage bunshin, there's no reason for him to use the regular bunshin. And yeah, I think that you can do it at the same time.

I think he does know it and that he has used it before, but for the most part he prefers kage because he likes to have more support when fighting against people. Just for the record there were things I didn't like when I was a kid I didn't like onions, but I eat them now at Micky D's since they are so tiny.

I wasn't saying that he wasn't strong. Every last word I just said about Naruto-kun was completely true. He is stubborn, constantly eats Ramen, and is, in fact, Blond. So then, that would be a perfect catagory choice for him, now wouldn't it? I'll add strong if it'll make you feel better, but I'm not putting him as Genius.

I believe what makes a genius is the ability of that individual to surpass others in whatever he/she does with either less time or less effort others have require to get to that particular skill level. Though Lee said that Sasuke was a genius, I agree with Gai when he told Lee that he was a genius at hard work...Dayum that boy can move and kick a$$ with those lotus gates opened!!

If I'm not mistaken....this thread talks about how we all define "genius"....so in that way, all opinions are valid. I believe there is no ONE definition for "genius".

Some people define "genius" as unsurpassed skill and ability, beyond that normally capable of being achieved by ordinary man...and true, this indeed can define a "genius"...but I also believe that "genius" is not merely measured by inborn gift or talent- perhaps genius is that "greatness" that makes people transcend their weakness and surpass their limitations. That drive within them to better themselves despite the onslaught of problems and difficulties. When viewed from this manner, "genius" CAN and DOES include Lee and Naruto.

In Hinata's eyes, Naruto is a genius- even more so, he is a hero (I would like to think that is even more noble than being a mere "genius"). Hinata's narration when Naruto was having a difficult time in the Chuunin prelim fights was very heartwarming and impressive (e.g. "now you will show them..etc.")

But personally, as what I have mentioned in another thread, true genius is in knowing one's capabilities totally- that includes one's limitations and weaknesses. Before one can triumph over one's weaknesses, one has to know and acknowledge them first (and this, Neji does...which very much impresses me). Many people see Neji as this stuck up brilliant kid who is puffed up and full of himself- true...he is awesome and he knows it...but what most people don't realize is that what makes Neji TRULY a genius is because...yes, he KNOWS his weakness... (I am still waiting for either Naruto or Sasuke to do this...), and by facing boldly that weakness, he transforms this "weakness" into a trump card- now THAT is genius.

How do you know that Sasuke is aware of his blood lines limits, this really hasn't been conveyed to us like it was for Neji.

im sure sasuke hasnt got 100% knowledge on his bloodline like maybe itachi does and neji for his byuukugan but he know its weaknesses and he is learning abt it more and more especially infer kakashi's guidance. plus dont forget that neji had one year to train his bloodline brfore we even saw him! im not saying he is the same as sasuke but still sasuke is considered close
